Does it power up at all? If so connect it to a computer that has iTunes installed and look in Windows explorer for your phone. The photos directory will be accessible and you can copy the photos to your computer.

Did you ever back up the device in iTunes or set up iCloud and backup the pictures on there?

Just for giggles, try connecting it to your computer and look in Explorer to see if it shows up, just because the display doesn't come on doesn't necessarily mean it's dead.

You might also try installing the free version of DiskAid on your computer and see if you can get into the file system on your phone.

yeah, i backed up everything on iCloud and iTunes.. I signed in to iCloud and there was no place where i could get my pictures.. i was able to get my contacts that was in my phone and thats about it.. i also signed into iTunes and i dont think i could do anything because my phone wasnt plugged in for it to recognize it.
